Metro Siphons Off Road Monies, Medicaid Expansion Budget Rejected, Many Good Bills Pass

The House of Delegates adjourned sine die Saturday, but without an agreement on a new two-year state budget. The House of Delegates passed a resolution Friday, applying to Governor Ralph Northam to convene a Special Session of the General Assembly to continue work on the budget.

33rd District Update: One Week Left...

As we enter the the final week of the 2018 legislative session, I'm amazed by how quickly time has passed. The General Assembly descended on Richmond during January's bitterly cold winter weather. Now, as we look toward adjournment, the trees are blooming and spring is just around the corner. I'm continuing to represent the interests of 33rd District residents as we finalize action on my legislation and all the other bills. Yet-to-be-determined is whether the House and Senate will be able to come to agreement on the budget, before our scheduled adjournment this Saturday. Read more here...

LaRock, Thirty Delegates Oppose Dominion Rate Freeze Redo Bill

Yesterday, a multi-million-dollar, pro-Dominion-Power, so-called “Grid Transformation and Security Act of 2018” passed the Virginia House of Delegates 65-30. Comments by some of the Republican Delegates opposing the revamped scheme reminded listeners that the State Corporation Commission (SCC) is in charge of, and very capable of, regulating Dominion, and that meddling with SCC oversight in the past has not gone well for rate payers. I applaud the 30 Delegates who stayed true to the people of Virginia when facing the proverbial giant, and made a sincere attempt to unwind the 2015 rate freeze.

NoVA Toll Relief Bill Killed, Continuing High Tolls and Leaving Open Door for Toll Freeloaders

Last night, a House subcommittee killed Del. LaRock’s bill which sought to provide relief from the Northern Virginia toll nightmare put in motion by the McAuliffe administration. 

“With tolls north of $40 one way on I-66 inside the beltway, taxpayers are being forced off a road they’ve paid for; we’re seeing this road become Lexus lanes for the wealthy. The fact that people from inner suburbs and Washington, DC get a free ride while my constituents are paying tolls up to $50 one-way Leesburg- to-Washington makes me furious.”
